napolitano, did she say we're on to somebody? >> i've had briefings with law enforcement, as well. they don't have specific leads at this point. >> this is like a fran sick search and all we have is a bomb. >> i do think it's something is going to come out on this bomb and lead us to where it originated. the other issue we do have a lot of photos. >> greta: we have searched a saudi national. i know because he a saudi national there is a little profiling there. they tackled him and they thought she was suspect. he searched his apartment and he is not a good sign. that is not a good sign. >> that lead washed out. there are other leads. i will say that is why they are asking the public to come forward if they have any information about this. so just like you, i'm very concerned. as you see the people who were killed and injured and maimed and crippled, an eight-year-old boy. it cries out for justice. >> what is curious, secretary napolitano is saying it does not appear to be a coordinated plot. upon what does she base that. from your briefing, did you get the sense she is reaching to her concl
investigation came up on capitol hill during a hearing with a homeland security janet napolitano. she talked on a number of issues, but about the investigation so far. yoe to bostohe fbi brs. hi gtl is here, saying he was at the scene along with many other people. boston detectives saw this moving quickly moving out of the crowd. he seems to be moving deliberately, which could be a natural thing. they ended up taking him to the hospital. that is straight off cbs. we ask average american to assist law enforcement in identifying who the bomber was. see something, say some. now we have someone who was being deported due to national security concerns, who was at the scene, he can possibly i.d. everybody, we're asking that in boston, and we had this g there, and he was detailed in the hospital, covered with blood, and that we will deport him. ofif i might, i am unaware anyone who is being deported for national security concerns at all related to boston. i do not know where -- eli >> he is being deported. >> like i said, i do not even think he was technically a person of interest or a suspect. tha
ideology or some other crazy set of ideas lou: homeland security department secretary napolitano saying that she is convinced that this is not part of a larger plot that it is one instance. your reaction? >> you can't know that now. you can't. i think it is not part of an international plot. that is my hunch. i investigated cases with punches. at the time they were right, have the time they were wrong. i had to abandon a lot of punches that turned out to be wrong. you're asking me for my hunch, this is not orchestrated by al qaeda overseas. but this could very well be being done by homegrown people who were looking to try to do the same thing. or we could be all wrong and this could be some kind of other plot having to do with something that we have not even figured out yet. lou: so i infer from what you're saying that you think this is at most a small group of people working to carry out these terrorist attacks. not an individual. >> i don't think this is a major, a planned attack by an overseas group. i think it would be far bigger than what we saw if it were a planned attack. on the
janet napolitano she did not believe the federal government did not believe that the boston incident was tied to a greater plot other than the boston incident. whether it has a bigger plot, in other words, tied to a bigger organization, they wouldn't say. whether it is foreign or domestic, federal officials would not say. as far as anything they've heard chatter wise intelligence wise, before or after, that is the real mystery here. they are not hearing much at all. that is a little bit unique. usually you have terrorist groups that claim responsibility. after the "new york times" new york times square bombing you had al-qaeda claiming right away. you have no one right now. sometimes that happens but it's pretty wear. they are not hearing any chatter. they didn't hear anything before. you heard in that press conference there wasn't a specific threat on a marathon. they had normal threat assessment heading into the race they aren't hearing anything from cellphones and radio traffic afterwards. >> eric: thanks a lot. now, we're going to head back to bill hemmer. we've heard from severa

've been working with secretary napolitano and find the way to provide jammers to local police. as far as those with detonators, there is no, other than having more dogs, more surveillance and that appears to what happened here. if it was a detonator, only way to stop there, if there were more police dogs constantly screening the area and, again, we, you know, when there is after-action report from the boston police department we'll have a better idea what happened, how those ieds got there. bill: yeah. understood. did you say jammers? i want to be clear on that, is that the word you used? >> jammers. yeah, jammers can be used against remote controls. bill: what would they do? >> they would prevent an ied going off. it would prevent the person trying to set it off by remote control, it would prevent that from happening. we used them in afghanistan. we used them in iriraq. bill: yeah, i asked that because apparently cell phone service and e-mail service was down several hours month afternoon. were jammers used in the boston after the attack it is. >> i'm not sure. could have been cell p
. >> by the way janet napolitano was testifying on capitol hill about the boston marathon bombings and she said there is no indication this was part of a bigger plot. that's a little bit of breaking news there. >> hal: no -- absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. it doesn't mean they won't be tied to other things later. there is a reason why new york and los angeles and seattle and chicago are all on alert and watching out for stuff like that. because these kind of acts are too easy to do. they are not -- they do not require a level of sophistication. the local law enforcement and fbi all across the country has foiled plots like this before and they go under the radar because they aren't the kind -- they aren't -- >> al-qaeda -- it still exists generally takes credit for this stuff. >> stephanie: that's what i mean. charlie pierce was saying that he and his sportswriter friends have said this is what it is going to be. it won't be the super bowl. it will be one of the last open events like the boston marathon. it is almost impossible to stop somebody from throwing something into a garb
security secretary janet napolitano. >> based on the evidence at this point, is there any difference between sandy hook and boston, other than the choice of weapons? in terms of intent for death and destruction and injury, no. methodology, guess. we don't know the motivation certainly behind boston. we don't know whether was domestic, international -- >> or if it was identical to the motivation in sandy hook. >> we just don't know the answer. i think it is impossible for me to sit at the table today and say they are identical, except in the effect of impact. >> as i look at the evidence that is available, you have mass destruction and violence and andghter of innocents, neither case do we note motive. the irony is, we are so quick to call boston terror, why are we not calling the man with a high- capacity assault weapon and a high-capacity magazine, why are we not calling him a terrorist? >> i don't know the answer to that question. host: bill braniff, do you have a response to that exchange? ofst: the definition terrorism is an often repeated question. it comes up and all kinds of c
in this case. >> this morning, secretary napolitano said in a hearing on capitol hill, he went overseas to russia, and is the president concern there's a flaw in the system, and if so, is he looking to have a revie of that and having it possibly changed? >> what the president said when he stood here before you late friday evening night was that there are many questions that need to be answered, and that's what a thorough investigation will produce is answers to all the questions that we have about these two individuals, their activities, their thrafl, their associations, what motivated them, and everything that went into the decision that they took to, you know, engage in a terrorist act against people of the united states and boston. that will be all of these questions would be part of this investigation. it is part of the case that will be built against the suspect who is in custody and part of the overall investigation of what happened. >> should he have began -- been on a no-fly list? should people spending that much time in russia be on a no-fly list and just spend time overseas? >
